Police Search For Missing 5 Day Old Baby

Police in Texas are searching for a five-day-old baby they say was abducted by an impostor nurse who befriended the infant's mother at a Lubbock hospital.

Police say Priscilla Nicole Maldonado weighs five-and-a-half pounds and was last seen wearing a diaper and white socks. She was wrapped in a blue receiving blanket at the time she was taken. Lubbock police Lieutenant Roy Bassett says the woman vanished with the baby during a visit to the home of the baby's mother. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports the baby's family said the woman had visited at University Medical Center and acted like a nurse. The newspaper reports that the baby has been diagnosed with jaundice and needs medical care. Police describe the suspect as a white woman in her 30's, about 150 pounds with dirty blond hair.
